The Rockies aren't the only team coming off a 2-9 road trip. The miserable Mets did the same, a stretch in which they batted .196 as a team.
General Manager Omar Minaya, after hinting some coaches could get fired, decided to keep the staff intact for the remainder of the season.
I'm wondering if Minaya thought about firing himself seeing as he's the one who assembled this team.
How Jerry Manuel, who has never been confused with John McGraw, keeps his job as manager is a mystery.
Looks like the 50-49 Mets are finished. They are 7 1/2 out in the East and like the Rockies, they better get hot in a hurry. I don't think they will. Come the end of the season, the penny-pinching Wilpons better back up the truck and clean house starting with Minaya and Manuel. But they probably won't.
